Didn't Joni Mitchell or Nick Drake use that :lol:

I've been looking at different tuners and if this does what I think it does, it seems like the ticket.



Correct.
It's a pretty cool tuner if you play slide or fingerstyle - makes it easy to change alternate/open tunings onstage.
If you're a beginner or just plain can't remember the how the individual strings are tuned for all of those tunings, this thing has your back.

Whatever you go for: try and get one with an led display. I've got an expensive seiko and another cheapy. Both are using an LCD screen and both are mostly useless in dark / dim lighting conditions. Once you've found one, kindly give us some feedback as I'm looking for an led unit myself.
